Did you know that cinnamon can actually be used as a medicinal herb? It can be used as an anti-bacterial, and it's also known to kill stealth bacteria in our bodies like micoplasma! Who knew?!
I have a lot of healthy recipes I've been trying lately that are going to go up on here soon, but I had to postpone all of those because this recent recipe I just made was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! This recipe taught me so much about clean eating and how you don't have to eat bad tasting food to eat clean. These cinnamon rolls look, taste, smell, and make you feel amazing!
I don't know why anybody would feel like they need processed sugars and other processed food in their lives when they can eat something this delicious and nourish their body with proper nutrients at the same time! These rolls are made with organic, whole wheat flour, and they're about 98% sugar free, and 100% refined-sugar free! The only refined sugar in these babies is a little bit of raw honey in the dough, and then the filling and frosting is sweetened with Lakanto sweetener which is not processed in your body the same way sugar is. Lakanto is an amazing sweetener that is made with Monk fruit which is a super food and filled with nutrients!
You can purchase Lakanto here and you can also find it on Amazon!
The BEST Healthy Cinnamon Rolls!
1 cup warm coconut milk (110° F)
1/3 cup butter (melted)
4 1/2 cups organic whole wheat bread flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup raw honey
2 1/2 tsp. yeast (do not use instant yeast! Instant yeast is highly processed)
1/2 cup golden Lakanto sweetener
2 1/2 Tbs. ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1 (8 oz.) package organic cream cheese
1/4 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup powdered Lakanto sweetener
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pinch of salt
*These rolls stay super fresh for about five days if you store them in the fridge! Then when you're ready to eat them you can either warm them in your warming drawer on high for 10 mins. Or you can preheat your oven to 350°, turn it off once it's fully preheated, and place your rolls inside for about 10 mins. Then when you take them out it will be like having a freshly baked cinnamon roll!
*Use organic ingredients when feasible.
I have always wanted to try making a smoothie bowl, and I finally got the chance! I was looking for a really simple smoothie bowl recipe, and I realized that there isn't much to choose from when it comes to simple smoothies, so I created one myself and here it is! This is a raspberry banana smoothie, and you can basically top it with whatever you'd like! I also used whey powder in the smoothie which is known for detoxing heavy metals out of the gut! Detox and deliciousness! Yay! I topped these with fresh banana, chia-seeds, shredded coconut, and granola. All the ingredients in this recipe are organic and refined-sugar free!!
(Keep in mind that this recipe serves three people. So three small bowls worth!)
Raspberry Banana Smoothie Bowl!
2 large bananas
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
1/8 cup maple syrup
3 cups frozen raspberries
1 Tbs. whey protein powder
organic sugar free granola (you can use your own homemade or find the kind I used here)
My first quiche! Okay, first of all... making quiche is a learning experience. Second of all, quiche takes a long time to cook, so if you're planning to eat it that day, PLAN AHEAD! Third, I had so much fun making this even if it's totally crazy and just came off the top of my head! Ha! This quiche is made with farm fresh, organic free-range eggs. It's also made with all organic veggies, and the hash-brown crust is made with home-grown, organic potatoes! It's also very versatile so you can pretty much throw whatever you like in it! I think adding olives, tomatoes, and other kinds of peppers would be a great addition to this recipe! This recipe is also topped with fresh, organic, Parmesan cheese, but if that's not an option for you cheddar cheese would work just as well!
3 cups freshly grated potatoes (about 3-4 large potatoes)
1/4 cup butter (melted)
3 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup dairy unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup diced onion (about a half of a small onion)
1/2 cup diced mini sweet peppers (about 4 small peppers)
3/4 cup diced sliced turkey (omit if you prefer vegetarian quiche)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Italian spice
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup (split into 1/4 in the mixture, and 1/2 to sprinkle on top)
